Vanguard Natural Resources, LLC (VNR), Williams Partners L.P. (WPZ): These MLPs Are Worth Your Attention (And Money)

3). Pipeline operator Energy Transfer Partners LP (NYSE:ETP) filed to sell up to $800 million of new common units. Energy Transfer is a huge name in oil transportation. It has $15.5 billion in assets and a market cap over $10 billion. Energy Transfer Partners LP (NYSE:ETP) wholly or partially owns and operates 23,500 miles of natural gas and natural gas liquids pipelines in the Northeast, Midwest, and Gulf Coast regions of the U.S. It also owns natural gas storage and distribution terminals and natural gas processing facilities. Last year, ETP announced it would buy Sunoco for $5.3 billion. And as any good income investor knows, significant growth in an MLP (especially one as well-established as ETP) means higher income for shareholders.

The Fool looks ahead

MLPs are great income vehicles for yield- starved investors. When MLPs raise capital, they are signalling further expansion and growth. I recommend you follow these signals because more income is sure to follow.
